Round I Go To Rotary

May 17, 2012

Just got back from a speaking engagement and luncheon at Karen’s Albemarle Rotary Club! She has talked about how much she loves going to rotary for years now, so it was fun to see what it was all about.

Before my talk, everyone enjoyed a nice buffet at the Boar’s Head Inn.

I filled up on salad, cottage cheese (can’t get enough!), fruit (ditto!) and some cheese slivers, plus tomato-y fish and rice.

Plus half a cup of cream of asparagus to warm me up!

Karen raves about the Boar’s Head bread pudding, so I had to give that a taste as well. It was quite good!

I presented an abbreviated version of my Real Food Talk to the group. I think it was well received because I got quite a few laughs out of them!

Back at home, blogging from the porch, with a belly rolling around as somebody wakes up from what must have been a nap!

I miss tomatoes, I used to eat them every day but after I was diagnosed with ulcer I said goodbuy to them :( I can’t get enough of cottage cheese to, I actually bought a lemon flavored flax seed oil from WF and add a little to the cottage cheese, it is so good!

The more people are educated on the benefits of ‘Real Food’ the better! I think eating ‘real’ is money well spent…I hope to live a long and active life for as long as possible. Keep up the good work!

It’s hard to tell food quality from photos, but I’ve been a guest at a few Rotary lunches, and that looks WAY better than any of the food I remember.

I’ve never actually had bread pudding, but it looks so good!

You are missing out! If you can find a GF bread pudding you have to try it!

I can’t believe how beautiful Karen looks. She looks younger and more radiant every time you post a picture of her.

Hi Kath,

Karen always looks so cute. I love her top in this photo! Do you happen to know where she got it?

Have a super time at the hospital during your classes! Happy Weekend!

Kath– I had no idea you had a blog! A friend and I were having dinner tonight, and we happen to be talking about bread in CVille and I was raving about your bread and how you too are an RD…of course she already knew and mentioned she follows your blog and loves your overnight oats! Hopefully, we can convince you to talk at a meeting next year:)
